Hello partners! I just wanted to take a moment to tell you about the Microsoft Partner Network Digital Marketing competency that will be available in October 2010. This new competency enables you to showcase your expertise in developing rich Internet solutions on Microsoft SharePoint 2010 for Internet Sites, Microsoft FAST Search technology, and the Microsoft Silverlight browser plug-in. That said, help your customers by attaining the competency and offering solutions that are highly functional, scalable, flexible, and secure through a unified platform for intranet, extranet, and Internet sites.

Feel free to post any comments or questions you have about this new competency and I’ll work with the Learning Team to get back to you.
